The supporters of former president Uhuru Kenyatta are currently considering removing Sabina Chege and Kanini Kega from their designated roles.
Sabina Chege, who was nominated to be the deputy minority whip in the National Assembly, was successfully removed by Azimio just one day earlier, and now the beleaguered party leadership wants to withdraw both her nomination and that of her EALA counterpart, Kanini Kega.
Following its meeting on Thursday, the Jubilee NEC directed the party’s parliamentary leadership to work with their allies in Azimio to remove members who support President William Ruto from committee leadership.
Uhuru spoke with the Jubilee party over the phone during the NEC, and they mentioned how crucial it was to have party members who were dedicated to the cause.
In order to bring down the party from within, some of the Kenya Kwanza government’s members have been given jobs, according to Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni during the NEC.
After the fallout from Uhuru’s election defeat, the Kega-Chege faction has been attempting to seize control of the party, but the court has put a hold on the takeover.
While the Kega faction wishes to break away from the opposition coalition, Kioni insists that they are still in Azimio.
Prominent members of the Kega faction have sworn loyalty to Kenya Kwanza, assisting the ruling coalition in advancing its legislative program.
The most recent action is probably going to start a new round of lawsuits, which will intensify the rivalry between the parties.
In order to prevent the Azimio side from dismissing her from her position as deputy minority whip, Sabina Chege filed a lawsuit.
National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula announced the modifications following Azimio’s threat to withdraw from the bipartisan negotiations.
